A few pictures of a dinner from a few nights back. Founds some wasabi flavored sesame seeds so we rubbed them on some sashimi grade tuna and gave it a very quick, very hot sear on cast iron. Sliced thin and drizzled with a mixture of soy and fish sauce. Served with salad.

Rubbed with the wasabi sesame seeds.

On the cast iron, only one minute per side.

    VERRRY NICE COOK! :)
  • I am almost certain we stumbled upon them at Trader Joes, but I'll try to confirm. They tasted great (if you like wasabi) right out of the jar. Lost a little of the wasabi flavor during the cook. In hind site, we would have marinated the tuna or made more of a dipping sauce. Though the seeds would carry more flavor. But, still a great meal!

    Perfectly cooked. Nice job.
  • Wow, looks super good, I will try if I can find the fixins !!
  • Turns out I was wrong ... The seeds were ordered from a company on www.easy.com

    I guess there are recipes to make them at home on the web.

    Man, that looks incredible and I bet it tastes even better. Love it B)
  • That was supposed to read etsy.com. If you go to the site and do a search for wasabi sesame seeds you'll find them. Another option is to make a thin wasabi paste using wasabi powder, rub that on the steaks then dip in regular sesame seeds.
